The World at His Fingertipsby Barbara O'Conner, Rochelle Draper, Barbara O'Connor
In the early 1800s, blind people had few choices in life: they could play music, weave baskets, or beg. Louis Braille changed all that. As a thirteen-year-old, he developed an alphabet made up of dots and dashes that was easy to learn and quick to read and write. Over time, he refined the alphabet to do away with the dashes. Louis's creation, now called simply "braille," paved the way to knowledge and independence for generations of blind people."
